🏆 2021 BIBA® Non-Fiction: Theology Winner!
A Theology for the Rest of Us is a straightforward approach to the fundamental questions of religion and philosophy:
Does God exist?
Is there free will?
What is ‘evil’?
This book draws on the traditions of the East as well as the West—Taoism, Buddhism and Hinduism in addition to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—to see what can make sense in today’s world. Whether exploring the implications of 17th century Enlightenment philosophers, quantum physics, or the insights of writers such as Dostoyevsky and Alan Watts, the reader is offered a rational, coherent approach that can provide understanding and a basis for hope in a world where the spirit has been all but decimated by doubt and worse.
Most important, the reader is encouraged to sift through these sources and choose what resonates and what does not. As the Buddha taught so many years ago, the Prime Directive is “Be ye lamps unto yourselves.” A Theology for the Rest of Us makes teachings accessible to those who have already begun their spiritual journeys, validating their questions and showing that reasonable answers are available.
